pretty much in total agreement...
with the previous comment. although, from my perspective atleast, the fear and loathing quotation (dear, headlights, the fear etc...) was a tad bit unnecessary and inconsistent, there was not any noticeable level of fear, infact they play hope, which is one of the biscuits most uplifting songs...either way, its an absolutely amazing show, anyone who is reading this should absolutely download it now...be careful with the last two tracks of disc 1 though, depending on your version of mkwAct, or whatever utility you use to convert shn files, it may report some errors on those two tracks...but amazing show, absolutely brilliant.

One of the very best of Fall 2002
With so many AMAZING shows to choose from on this tour it is impossible to qualify a single one as the best. But this show would easily fall into my top 3.
It tends to get overlooked due to the rest of the Midwest run (CWB the night before, HAB->Crix->HAB the next night, and 3 sets in Chicago). On paper nothing really stands out from this show. But as you know... what you see on paper doesn't tell a fraction of the story.
This show is one of the most creative shows I have ever heard out of this band. It is extremely dark and freakish throughout... I could actually see the fear in their eyes while they were playing this show. They looked like a bunch of deer caught in headlights and barely interacted with the crowd at all. They were tapped into the fear and it was coming out of their instruments.
Spaga -> Helicopters is one of my favorite things I have heard this band play to date. And the Svenghali might be the only good inverted version of that song they have ever played. Download this show to get a glimpse of some very unique Disco Biscuits, playing in a style we will probably never hear again.
